    So I'm confused is it legal to jailbreak an iPhone?

    Legal for iPhones.

    Not legal for iPads and iPods.

    I thought it was just illegal for iPads, not iPods?

    Isn't the legality of jailbreaking irrelevant if no one enforces it?

    To be honest I still don't see why it is illegal to jailbreak iDevices other than iPhones.

    Actually from what I heard if anyone enters the U.S. through the Airport with a jailbroken iPad, then it will be confiscated, however, I don't know if this is true or not.

    But how would they know if someone had a jailbroken iPad? It's not like they go around and check peoples iPads.

    There's our airport security, protecting the country from the most dangerous sources of terror and crime on Earth.

    Because a jailbroken iPad could be a bomb.

    That exactly what I thought when I heard about it, but again we are talking about Airport customs, so who knows, and I think they have the right to check every single thing you have

    If it is illegal then it is illegal, it doesn't matter if it is a bomb or a jailbroken iPad
